2 stars A concept album about self-reformation. This is swedish music, so it can't be bad at all. I like the Evergrey dark melodic formula. They are not like many power metal bands without personality. But they seems to find themselves too much into this personality, falling into the sameness, Well, it's an average album. It have some very good tracks, like The Great Deceiver, Blinded, and my favorite (a short acoustic): Madness Caught Another Victim. The band seems to lose creativity at this point. It's a great album for metalheads and fans, and I like it too, but I don't miss this album in my collection, I really don't care. The good songs from this album are so easy-listening that I haven't heard any of them more than three times and I can play almost the whole songs in my mind, and maybe with the guitar too, but I just don't wanna try. Easy- listening tracks isn't a bad point, but sometimes it's too much like a "radio hit", the kind of track that you play consecutive times when you find, and you will forget about it in the future.

A nostalgic album for some personal reasons, but I don't think this one will catch the most of you guys. Fans only.
